The Magic Bullet Mini is the younger sibling of “the one that started it all,” the original Magic Bullet blender.
In terms of size, it’s half as small as its predecessor. It’s definitely not for sharing. You have the 10 oz cup and a bigger 16 oz container if the smaller one is not enough.
The ultimate advantage of getting this variant is the price. It’s rock bottom cheap. However, the accessories are quite limited to the cups. IMHO, you’ll get a better deal with the Magic Bullet.
Since, we’re talking about the smaller Magic Bullet, let’s get back to the topic and discuss its pros and cons.
- Make quick and simple recipes
- Small and portable design
- Comes with 2 cups (tall and short)
- Easy cleaning
- Dishwasher safe
- 1-year warranty
- Only ideal for small servings and basic recipes
- More liquids will be needed
- 200-watt motor
- There’s barely any accessories available
Magic Bullet Mini Features
The Small Magic Bullet is a specialist. Well, that’s just a fancy way of me saying it can only make a few things. That’s in comparison with larger blenders.
Here’s the deal:
Its motor is not that impressive. However, this small blender can still be of help n the kitchen.
Having said so, here are some recipes you can try with it:
To be honest, that list is pretty impressive for a small blender. Who would have thought that there’s so much you can do with it.
A few cautions:
The Magic Bullet mini blender has a 200-watt motor. It’s not strong enough to crush ice efficiently. To compensate for that flaw, your recipes should have an ample amount of liquid.
Another thing to keep in mind is it’s not designed for processing hot ingredients. Never make hot soups with this small blender. Hot components will lead to pressure build-up and may result in unnecessary injury. I hope that’s crystal clear.
If you need a single-serve blender that can also make hot soups, check out the Nutribullet Rx.
In the following section, we’ll check its overall usability.
Ease of Use
No sweat. That phrase best describes this magic bullet mini blender in terms of usability.
It’s as simple as one push. Needless to say, you’d have to prep the ingredients first. For starters, prominent constituents may not even fit.
However, that’s not really the reason for it. Since the blender has a weak motor, it may have a hard time. So, with smaller ingredients, not only will it be more efficient, but it will also allow the blades and motor to have a longer life.
Ideally, it should be the size of strawberries.
In terms of cleaning, it’s pretty straightforward. The cups are dishwasher safe, so that’s less problem to worry about. The motor base only needs to be wiped.
On the other hand, the blades can be a little complicated. Essentially, you have to use a brush to clean the blades. It’s pretty small, so cleaning it with your hands is discouraged.
Here are some other things you need to know:
- Do NOT run the machine for more than a minute. If you have a lot to blend, let it rest in-between.
- For safety reasons, do NOT blend hot recipes.
- The blade is not dishwasher safe.
- Most importantly, please read the user guide before starting.
